5:20 pm
rainfall totals here across the bay area. let's go ahead and look at future cast. we've got a lot of times here to stop on. you can see at 8:00 not a whole lot happening. 11:30 we'll begin to see showers develop offshore down toward the south bay. by overnight hours around 4:00 in the morning that's when widespread rainfall will develop from the north bay to the south bay. it's going to continue into the morning commute. if you're doing anything early tomorrow morning, getting kids ready for school, yourself for work, you need the jacket, umbrella, and extra time in the commute. afternoon hours, we'll have steady areas of rainfall on and off at times with scattered areas of thunderstorms. then get ready, another round of rainfall is going to be arriving as we head throughout wednesday morning and that's where we could get in on a little bit of isolated flooding here for the bay area. then by wednesday afternoon we'll continue under this period here of some scattered rainfall. we'll go ahead and sum it up for you. we know it's a lot of weather. we haven't seen anything like this in a while.
5:21 pm
the next 48 hours, periods of rain, gurlsy winds, a chance of thunderstorms. rainfall totals for lower elevations 1 to 2 inches. and the biggest hazards we continue to think we're going to see are downed trees and also minor flooding as winds could top 30 miles per hour. so we'll take you to the microclimate forecast. everyone expecting the chance here of rainfall. widespread 60s from san jose with 63 to san francisco also expecting low 60s as well. we'll dealt you to the north bay, east bay, and tri-valley. not only wet but windy here as well. coldest temperatures in the north bay, not expected to get out of the 50s tomorrow. pleasanton 63. so here's how the trend looks. wet weather on tuesday. also on wednesday. by thursday and friday we'll hang on to a few scattered showers. then eventually the next dry day in the forecast, not going to get here until saturday. it's what we've been asking for. we've got hazards to deal with and we'll be here tracking for you. still ahead at 5:00, three years after his death, steve
